Enon: A Novel

Enon - Paul Harding I received this book through Goodreads first reads.

I read many of the reviews, and found that a lot of people were complaining that there was no real plot. That much is true. The book is about a man who has lost his daughter, and then separated from his wife and his journey to come to terms with his loss. He sees visions of his daughter and relives memories while in a drug and alcohol based stupor.

For anyone who has lost someone important to them it is a powerful book. At times I criticized him for his weakness, but at other times I understood his pain. At one point the author explains his actions saying he would have given anything to exchange one human word, and I fell in love with the book, because that is a feeling I have felt many times before.

It is beautifully written, filled with such angst that you can't help but feel the same.

If your looking for a light read, this isn't it, but if you are looking for something powerful, something beautiful, something to change your perspective... Read Enon.
